Farmland Values Project
Focus Groups
  Between May and July 2006, 17 focus groups were conducted with residents of Buncombe, Haywood, Henderson, and Madison counties. The focus groups were designed to gather feedback from farmers and non-farming residents about the values that they have for farmland in our region. The focus groups engaged 133 individuals including rural and urban dwellers, farmers and farm workers, conservation groups, and developers.
